In 2010, KTM started importing the RC8R to the US. To celebrate, they released two limited edition models, both of which had just 25 examples produced. One was the Akrapovic Edition (reader Zack B. actually found one for sale just 3 days ago), the other is this post’s subject – the KTM RC8R Red Bull Edition.
The 1195cc V-Twin engine makes 170 horsepower and good torque, which helps this bike in the city, but this really is the ‘hooligan’ choice of bike over rivals like the Ducati 1198 or BMW S1000RR. Dry weight is just 410 pounds, and you’ll get Brembo monoblocs and fully-adjustable WP suspension in the front and rear. The limited edition gained a few things over the base model, including a limited edition number plate, the special fairings, and an optional race kit which includes an Akra titanium exhaust system, thinner head gaskets, better air filter, and a tool that adjusts camshafts to become more aggressive.
This specific KTM RC8R Red Bull Edition (VIN: VBKVR94069M960857) has 3,134 miles and unfortunately does not come with the club race kit. It does have a Corbin seat and all the original parts that were removed (passenger pegs and seat, turn signals, etc), and will come with the factory custom tail bag, Pit Bull rear wheel stand, bike cover, and a few more small pieces.
